This paper looks at the international literature and practice on what immigration policy consists of; how countries manage the entry of migrants and influence the volume of immigration; how countries manage the selection and influence the composition of migrants to meet their objectives; and how settlement of migrants is managed. In doing so, the paper looks at the comparative decision-making structures and governance arrangements surrounding immigration policy around the world.


This report is a supplementary report to the Commission’s draft report for its immigration inquiry. It will be revised and updated to support the final report, which will be released in April 2022.
